are -- [applause] we are the most energy abundant country in the world. ten years ago or 12 years ago we were about ready to no longer have natural gas. it's amazing. people were building billion dollar plans to import liquefied natural gas into the country and today we have so much gas. that's because american ingenuity and american technology, a greek immigrant combining the two existing technologies, hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling created the greatest explosion of innovation in the last decade of times certainly competing in the commercialization of the internet. there should be dancing and parade celebrating this incredible thing that we are now on the press at this of being energy secure and all the benefits that have. but unfortunately i guess because much of this has taken place in west texas and north dakota it's not cool. the people i don't know who come there is a committee that decides what school and what is and, so there isn't the kind of celebration that there should be. there should be because this is something that opens up the door for tremendous benefits for our coun
to deal with the sustainability, the sustainable environment, carbon energy, the world as we know it, weather governed by city or nation states will mostly vanish. the crisis we face in water supply in the rising oceans, in the shift of population, and immigration go drightly back to the problem of ecology. we have watched nation states sit by while all every of those tipping points whether it's two degrees in the raising of the atmosphere, whether 350 part per million of carbon in the at fear, our bypassed and go up and it's already beyond two degrees than the temperature has gone up. it's already well past 350 we are up to 420 or so and climbing. states have made an awful lot of noise and done almost nothing. but here is some interesting an optimistic facts. cities use 75 to 80 percent of the world 'carr bonn energy and are responsible for 75 to 80% of the world 'carbon emissions. they happen in city. which means even if china and canada and the u.s. and france do nothing, cities can impact carbon emissions significantly by the work they done. and indeed, that's already happening.
their energy whether donations are going to washington so you see an explosion of support for the campaign that sclc was not prepared to do with. the often did things by the seat of their pants and it worked out but they add as a major campaign to bring thousands of people to washington d.c. building the encampment on the national mall to house those people and run a small city all while trying to mourn the death of their friend and a leader. it becomes obvious how difficult this will be as the campaign moves forward. and a series of caravans' brings people across the country from the pacific northwest and southwest and the south to bring folks across the country to washington to descend on congress and did ministration to say you need to take property seriously. here is example number one probably the most famous caravan that brought people to d.c. a classic symbol of southern poverty of black-and-white sharecropping. one of the rallies that happens later but what is interesting is while this is the most important symbols of the pork people's campaign, it is misleading because it reinforc
. but of course i have the energy saving lightbulbs. the energy saver lippold saves as much electricity -- saves as much carbon in a year is moving to a walkable neighborhood space in a week. so the whole gadget discussion, what can i buy this around discussion. where can i live and how can i live to contribute less than the answers the city. this is fundamentally the opposite of the american from jefferson on. cities are the morals, health and freedom of man. if they pile up pile upon ourselves as they do in europe, we shall take to eating one another as they do there. i was jefferson. i continue to make sense back in the 1700s but we have the country to spread out in the biggest transportation was fertilizer. that's not the case now. so all three of these are longer discussion. but they are all national crises. it's only going to get tougher. a national health crisis which is bankrupt and if any prebuilt to clear a couple weeks ago, global warming is beginning to think systematically. now we're talking about mitigating it. thus we have the better off we are in the more we become an u
percent energy all the time that the record we had a budget and want to make sure we are well funded and that is a different kind i was getting tired of. i think i left at the right time and it's now incredibly well. >> host: why don't you tell everybody what it's like to be a lawyer in an actual murder case. >> guest: >> host: what advice. >> guest: what advice. >> host: like is it like law and order? >> guest: i have a hard time watching the television shows. it's very intense representing individual when you are based on liberty and that responsibility especially in a murder case is incredible. there was never a time i wasn't a bundle of nerves. i felt sick because i knew if i may animistic it could cost the client. this also incredibly fulfilling. when the jury comes back with a non-guilty vote it's the better sound for me to know i was able to free some one and i felt good about so it's not for everyone. i talked to my students about this all the time and those that are interested in crumble wall kill the one to the prosecutors and someone to the defense attorneys and i encourag
energy for the rest of the day. it was a great way to start my day. i think the court still enjoys the privilege of having the exercise class early in the morning. >> host: will you stay and signed some books for everyone? >> guest: not everyone there are too many people. but i will stay for as long as i can. okay? all right. it has been nice. thank you. [applause] spinet we're at the see pat conference in washington d.c. with the former lieutenant governor of new york to put out a book called beating obamacare and she is holding the health care law. >> all 2,572 pages. i read this so you don't have to and beating obamacare is a walk through of the next 18 months. it is not a political book but a guide to help you avoid the land mines of the consequences and body blows over the next 18 months. >> the first to take effect but those who get coverage from their job are being hit and told we are dropping your coverage or pushing new down to part-time status because the law says they have to offer coverage the one size fits all package which is twice as much as they currently offers of
there are 19 roughly million saudis and eight to 9 million foreigners in the kingdom. because energy is subsidized and cheap, people waste it. and it has now become again a subject in the saudi press and discussed among saudis that what's going to happen if we continue to use more, and we're blessed to export come and its exports of oil to fund our lifestyle. now, it is possible that the government will find a way to tell people we're going to cut the subsidies, but in this post arab spring environment, they are inclined to take things some people. and the country is $500 billion in foreign reserves, so it's hardly broke, but there are saudis financial institutions who estimate that the government spending will exceed government revenues by 2014. goes after the arab spring when king abdullah came home from back surgery, he passed out $130 billion to the society on top of a $180 billion annual budget. so more money for students stipends, more money to the religious establishment, more money to everyone, and created a minimum-wage for the first time for saudis. obviously, not for forei
, that was a symbol they were the body of christ eating feeding their spiritual energy saying that's you lying on the at tar, that bread. he says, receive what you are, the body of christ. when had became a matter of the priests changing the very substance, it's an act almost of new creation, uncreates the dog, the host, or the wine, and you create under a mere rack -- miracleous -- that made my go a step further and say what gave the priest this tremendous power? i started looking at the assessment, and the od thing is in the time of jesus, there were no followers. no more priests among the followers of jesus. there were priests, of course, the jewish priests, and the original followers of jesus went to tell. , observed worship, and went to synagogue. when paul went back from traveling, met james, ahead of the church in jerusalem, he said, you're traveling, a good jew, go to the temple and be purr mid. he did. they had priests such that they were the jewish priests, but aside from that, the followers of jesus never offeredded sacrifice, which is what a priest does. paul mentions ministries li
in which we parent which take this ominous amount of energy that could be spent on other, more intellectual pursuits. so what do you think is the new feminine mystique? problems that don't have a name? >> so funny that is coming from a french woman and have a giant best seller. anyway. i don't think this is the most important problem but i do think it is a misconception to some extent that the port of vacation of the culture means we are sexually liberated. it is a myth. not the most important thing but it is a myth. i think -- i did a book about this interviewing young women about why are you flashing for girls gone wild? why are you, before you have ever -- when you still experience sexual desire why do you think is your responsibility to look as gangly as possible as one woman said. there is confusion about the difference between -- it is confusing, the difference between filling a new role, antithesis of the angel in the house and being totally sexually liberated and it is confusing and another issue that was always confusing when you talk about what caused -- sex and corn was pretty fr
. the reporters at the time told me we were going come out. that is that the journalism a high energy, low paying profession. it meant there back point you look a little ahead and your kids are about ready to go to college and you better get some money. that's what i expected in the last chapter when we added up the one by one by one we find something totally the opposite. rather than getting out, they stay in. two-thirds of them are in their for thirty years, fort years, even fifty years. you say how can it be? well, there were two reasons. the main reason that was the world had changed for them and everybody else as well. during this period, spouses, in this case, mostly women, remember was 80/20. that's who you marry. somebody like you. so now their spouse was a psychiatrist or a lawyer or a high government official or a lobbiest, now you have two upper middle class salaries or income, and together you can send your kids to college. the second thing you find out runs right through this, the people love what we're doing. they loved it. and the people are love the things they do after they leave
with slow car been energy because already we have warned the world to a stage of climate shocks that we were headed for the 4 degrees world than it describes that it is catastrophic. the worst in porous parts affects everybody like the titanic. not just the people in steerage who survives. and that it is confusing people that we have forgotten about the people. but let me finish. i don't want to speak for too long. hopefully we have a question and answer but how i captured intergenerational justice. our first grandchild was born he is the older child of the daughter who helped me right. when the number one was born i had a physical reaction. somehow i read calibrated physically and i now think this is part of his life now joined by three other grandchildren. fable be in there '40's 2050 that is of key year with climate. they will share the world with 9 billion others. we now have 7 billion so the fastest growth of population ever known. a world where we will definitely have severe weather shock's, big problems of food security and what will they say about us? what would they say about the de
